Hitting The Links: Pacific Coast Road Trip Edition

California is awesome and the Bruins don't get to go there nearly enough. Yes, I said it. Sometimes a few 10pm games in a row are actually sort of fun.

Believe it or not, too, there is some beef between the Sharks and Kings and the Bruins; many of their players, especially where San Jose is concerned, have played in Worcester of the American League, and are very familiar with the antics of such players as Brad Marchand and Tuukka Rask, having spent years playing against them down there. Worcester and Providence tend to play each other more than any other two teams; this year alone the two teams have 12 matchups out of 82 games. The more you know!

After the jump, Radulov watch is over, the Leafs are in a sad state, and an awesome article on Eddie Shore...
